District Health Dept#10 (DHD#10) in Crawford County, will be hosting a community wide Open House on Monday, May 21, from 3:00 to 6:00 PM at the District Health Department, 501 Norway Street, Grayling, MI. The community is welcomed to drop in and learn about the various programs offered at DHD#10, plus play some games, win some prizes, and have some fun.
A recent survey conducted by DHD#10, reported that 40% of the Crawford County community surveyed, were unaware of the services provided at the health department. This event will help raise awareness about what public health is all about and what programs are available to families and the community to improve and sustain healthy lifestyles in Crawford County.
District Health Department #10 is the largest geographic health department in Michigan, serving 10 counties including Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Missaukee, Newaygo, Oceana and Wexford. Established in 1997 after a consolidation of four health departments, our mission is to promote and to enhance the health of our communities and environment through protection, prevention and intervention.
“Public health strives to protect and improve the health of families and communities by promoting and supporting healthy lifestyles, conducting research, and through the detection and control of infectious diseases,” said Kevin Hughes, DHD#10 Public Health Officer. “As your local health department, DHD#10 in Crawford County is dedicated to supporting the community through population-based efforts to achieve better health outcomes and wellbeing for all.”
